This week’s episode of “The Flash” was all about being disappointed by heroes, with Wells breaking the trust of his team after the arrival of a vengeful former S.T.A.R. Labs employee and Iris having to deal with the reality that her new reporting mentor and journalism idol might be a jerk.
“The Flash” is back after a long midseason break, and Barry has some difficult choices to make. In the first episode of the New Year, Barry deals with old foe Leonard Snart (aka Captain Cold) as well as the decision to focus on enhancing his abilities versus trying to save everyone all the time. Meanwhile, Caitlin looks into Firestorm and Iris moves in with Eddie despite knowing that Barry’s in love with her.
The midseason finale of “The Flash” was so packed that I don’t even know where to start. It was basically an episode of huge reveals, which was shocking in its own way since we’re only halfway through the season. I’m curious to see where the story goes now that all the big secrets are mostly out in the open.
Okay, this week’s crossover episode of “The Flash” was the most loaded hour of television I have ever watched, so just bear with me here. Not only did it feature a very significant appearance from Team Arrow, but Barry became the bad guy and essentially ruined everyone’s lives for a bit thanks to the effects of a meta-human and Oliver had to fight him (hence the title “Flash vs. Arrow”). Oh, and Eddie now has an agenda against the Flash and wants to take him down with a task force.
This week’s episode of “The Flash” was all about time, which I suppose one could contribute to the appearance of the Clock King (who was on “Arrow” a while back as well, for anyone who remembers). References were made to the past and to the future, and our characters often found themselves running out of time or caught in situations with terrible timing.
